HOW SEACOLOGY WORKS TO PRESERVE ISLAND ENVIRONMENTS AND CULTURES
Seacology has field representatives based around the world who scout out our projects. This group of people is supplemented by a scientific advisory board comprised of island biodiversity specialists. We are governed by a board of directors composed of corporate leaders and island experts. This enables Seacology to work with a very small staff with no red tape or bureaucracy.
A small sample of Seacology projects to date includes:
- Repair to 20 primary schools and seven municipal offices in exchange for the protection of ten Madagascar Flying Fox roosts totaling 321 acres in the Mangoro Region of Madagascar.
- Construction of medical clinic in exchange for the establishment of a rainforest reserve for Ensem Village, Indonesia.
- Establishment of a permanent no-take mangrove forest reserve in exchange for coral reef clean-up and mangrove restoration in Iboih Village, Indonesia.
- Protection of the highly endangered Hainan Gibbon in exchange for the education of the children of four villages, Hainan, China.
- Construction of a community center in exchange for protection of a forest reserve on Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu.
Additionally, every year we award the Seacology Prize to the outstanding island indigenous conservationist of the year.
